Description
A substitute teacher walks into a new classroom, draws an outsized tree on the blackboard, and rewards her students by reading their fortunes with a Tarot deck, in the title story of this mid-career anthology by the National Book Award–nominated author of The Feast of Love. A self-described "Midwestern writer in a postmodern age," Charles Baxter writes tragicomic tales of lonely individuals trying to communicate with the world at large; 23 selections appear here, including "Harmony of the World," "Poor Devil," and "Ghosts."

"Charles Baxter's stories have reminded me of how broad and deep and shining a story can be."—Alice Munro

"Like Raymond Carver, Baxter has become a master of articulating the quiet confusion of despair, and of subtly suggesting that despair may, at times, be redemptive."—Ann Beattie
